Shakers at the ready – it’s Cayman Cocktail Week!

There is no question that the world of mixology has been taken to new heights over the years. Gone is your vodka and (gasp!) canned orange juice, along with gin and tonic, and rum and coke.

How to become an expert pumpkin carver

Halloween really was not a big thing in the U.K. when I was a kid, but then we left there when I was 2 years old, so what do I know? I think my first memory of going out trick-or-treating was when we moved to Cayman, and places like Merren’s department store and Comart carried your basic masks. Remember the ones? With just a thin piece of elastic that went around the back of the head?

Island Roast returns: A foodie night under the stars

If the idea of dining under the stars at a casual, yet sophisticated barefoot event appeals to you, then you need to get your tickets for the Feed Our Future Island Roast.

Breast Cancer Gala brings back Bill and Giuliana Rancic

The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman will be in the pink on Saturday as it hosts the annual Breast Cancer Gala Dinner.

October movies at Regal Camana Bay

Tom Cruise is back on the big screen, perhaps trying to redeem himself after the uninspiring “Mummy” release earlier this year. So far, critic buzz is pretty positive about his performance in “American Made”; let’s see if the box office follows suit.

On stage in South Florida this month

Wow. Things are getting very eclectic when it comes to concerts. Chris Isaak on one date and Twiztid on another? Neil Sedaka and Matisyahu? I’d like to find the person who would attend every single one of these; they would have very varied taste in music.

Slumber party for breast cancer

When we become adults, there are childish things we must put behind us … or are there? Who remembers slumber parties, also known as sleepovers, when a bunch of girlfriends would descend on one (un)lucky parent’s house and spend the night playing games and chatting into the wee hours?

Movies this month at Regal Camana Bay

If I were asked what film I’m most excited/terrified about this month, it would be “IT,” the remake of the Stephen King bestseller that was originally a two-part miniseries starring Tim Curry as Pennywise. The 1990 version really gave clowns a bad name, and it still stands up over time, apart from an ending that seemed to reveal its budget limitations.

Members of the Cayman CARIFESTA contingent onboard were relieved to make it to Barbados after hearing that some of the Jamaican representatives had flown out that same day, only to have their plane turn back because of the weather system.
